For a USB HID PDC (Power Device Class) UPS like this, "ups.test.result" comes straight from the spec:

https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/blob/v2.7.4/drivers/usbhid-ups.c#L383-L392 <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/blob/v2.7.4/drivers/usbhid-ups.c#L383-L392>

https://www.usb.org/document-library/power-device-class-document-10 <https://www.usb.org/document-library/power-device-class-document-10> page 26

It is possible to check around for other status bits, but if they are non-standard, mapping them back to useful names might be difficult.

I think it would be useful to have a debug dump from before and after replacing the battery, if you have the time. Basically, you can kill the driver out from under NUT ("killall usbhid-ups" as root), then restart it with "-DDD". If your system uses paths similar to Debian/Ubuntu, it will be something like this:

# /lib/nut/usbhid-ups -a desktop_ups -DDD 2>&1 | tee /tmp/CP850AVRLCD.debug.old-battery.txt

Let it run for a few seconds, and once it starts looping, you can kill it with Ctrl-C. If the log is larger than a few kB, please gzip it before sending.

You can start the driver again with "/lib/nut/usbhid-ups -a desktop_ups", or by restarting the whole NUT service if things are not looking right.
